The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the second and final novel by Anne Brontë, is concerned with the story of a woman who leaves her abusive, dissolute husband, and who must then support herself and her young son. Originally published in June of 1848, it challenged the prevailing morals of the time; a critic went so far as to pronounce it "utterly unfit to be put into the hands of girls." It is considered to be one of the first feminist novels.

Subject: Great job by all readers
This is a precious free service. If you do not like accents or what you call "poor readers" than go buy the audiobook. I wonder how many of my fellow anglophones would feel under such petty, trivial"criticism"? Good job by all the readers. Especially those whose english is a second language. I doubt there are very many english speaking listeners here, including myself, who could perform as well if they had to read in their second language. I have found that most foreigners(sans perhaps the French, but there is an historical background...)are very tolerant while an english speaker is trying to communicate in their countries. But while here in the Anglophone world, especially in "my country usa, in general people are not sympathetic or even down right rude to foreigners who speak "americanese" or english with some trouble or just because they have an accent. And in all probability there are many more foreigners who speak english better than most of us can speak theirs. alas, it would be no surprise that most of you critics are monolingual anglophones just like me.

If the book had been read by an articulate reader(s), I would have ranked it 4 or 5.
